GOODBYE PORK PIE by VAL POHIO
GRADE - HONOURS
An effective still life with great tones and textures, beautifully in focus throughout. The vertical lines of the elements of the image are complimented by the crisscross of the scratches in the wood. The contrast between the metal and piece of foliage is effective. I think it was clever to give the viewer a bit of a jolt with the placement a piece of greenery where you would expect a fork. The cut in the pie adds to image’s appeal, giving a hint of the meat below. The off-centre placement of the pie and the vignetting, together with the square format, suggest that this image was composed by someone with great artistic skill.
